MICHIGAN COMMUNITY RESOURCES PRESENTS:

THE POWER OF ONE DEDICATED WOMAN

An annual event honoring unsung women changing Detroit neighborhoods

AWARD PURPOSE

The Power of One Dedicated Woman honors deserving women who inspire others to be part of community work and build stronger neighborhoods. The invitation-only annual event recognizes women who set an example of what one woman can do to make a difference in the lives of others.

ELIGIBILITY

Do you know a woman who is changing Detroit neighborhoods? A woman who gives of herself for the greater good? A woman whose love and support has helped her community? A friend, neighbor or family member who stands out from others while never seeking attention for herself?

These women deserve recognition precisely because they did not ask for it. Though not often in the limelight, they are the ones who inspire. It’s time to honor the women who have created a stir, inspired change, and given us a reason to hope for a better future.

Nominate a woman today to be honored at The Power of One Dedicated Woman, an annual event honoring unsung women changing Detroit neighborhoods. Six women will be honored for their dedication to changing Detroit neighborhoods. Michigan Community Resources’ fourth annual event will take place on Tuesday, August 28, 2018 from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.

AWARD CRITERIA

Recipients will be selected based on the following criteria:

  • Female
  • Over age 18
  • Resident of Detroit
  • Volunteers her time, talent and treasure to improve her community; the service cannot be part of nominee’s job duties
